June birthday cards/ ATT Birthday Club
i belong to the birthday club over at the All thnigsTim yahoo group for 2013. There are 42 of us signed up and we just have to make a card and send to everyone involved during the month of their birthdays. Quite simple and it keeps me creating as I never seem to have time but have to get some made for this. June was a heavy hitter month so I made them all the same and mailed them off yesterday with the last two of the month going out tomorrow. I enjoyed making these. I started out with white cardstock and clear embossed a background stamp from hero arts on it. Die cut them with one of Tim's dies. use a blending tool with my Gathered twigs inkpad and wiped off the excess with a baby wipe over the embossed area. Used pitch black distress on a blending tool around the edges. stamped the frame from the Silouhettes set onto cream and fussy cut around them . Die cut the movers and shapers silhouette on black cardstock. Ran my cards through the vagabond in the fleur-de-lis embossing folder with just the card fronts insde it. Direct to paper with Gathered twigs over the raised parts and the edges. Tied some twine onto them and just glued all the layers together. Reminded me of old wall-paper and a picture hanging on it. Hope the y all like them.
